Associate IT Advisory Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Dallas, TX
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at KPMG US in February 2011.

Interview Details

Originally contacted by a recruiter. Had a phone screen with him and then another phone interview with a senior manager. I was then asked to come into the office for another round of interviews. In the office, I met with 3 other people (manager, senior manager, partner). The interviews in the office were much different than I expected. The were extremely nice which helped create a more relaxed atmosphere.

    IT Advisory - Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at KPMG US in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    After the phone interview was called to NYC for 2 interview round. The process started from 9.30am to 9.30pm in the night. Two 1:1 interviews, presentations, asked to make a group presentation and finally something called speed recruiting based on speed dating concept. 5 interviews in 40 mins each for 8 mins. Questions were based on experience based and also what if types. A interviewer wanted to know answers to typical scenarios which required brainstorming of ideas.

    Received an offer the next day. But it was way too low to be accepted. Its like 50% less than my other software position offer from another company. I wanted to take the job but I dont think I ll be able to even survive with the salary KPMG offers that too in NYC. If any KPMG recruiter reads this please do something to increase ur salary structure. Being a masters student with 2 yr experience I am being given same salary of that of an undergrad. Hmmfff....better I stick with my Software job than, paying from my parents pocket to live in NYC

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at KPMG US in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    There was a pre-interview meet and greet with hors d'oeuvres that was really pleasant. It was nice to meet the person you'd be interviewing with in a more casual setting. My interview consisted of a conversation with someone who was enjoyable but knew little about the department I'd be working in and gave me little opportunity to showcase my true (and applicable) skills. I never received a reply from my thank-you and it took several weeks and an email in the middle of the night on a Saturday to inform me that I wasn't invited to further rounds. The process was certainly pleasant, but I don't feel I was given the adequate opportunity.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days - interviewed at KPMG US in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had an half hour interview with a senior consultant on campus. Then I was invited to an on site interview the same Friday. There were three interviews that day. Each around 30 to 40 minutes. Mainly behavioral questions, hardly technical questions. You have to know what you want from the company and why you want to be in the IT advisory. The office is in the center of downtown, very nice location. The people at the company are well dressed and mannered.

    The process took a day - interviewed at KPMG US in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    My interview was basically basic behavioral: Tell me about your self, experiences with the companies I worked with. They were specifically interested in a few projects due to their requirement in that domain. Lasted about 50 minutes and was called for second round at two different locations.

    I guess they were interviewing for some specific projects.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed at KPMG US in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was done very professionally. They were on top of everything and I was always kept in the loop. The hiring manager was always respectful and made things easier on me throughout the whole process. The interviewers were very positive and the questions were reasonable. They were behavioral questions that centered around team work, dealing with conflicts in teams, working with people, etc. There were also questions about what progress the interviewee is making toward their career goals right now.

    Interview Questions
    • When you bring up past experiences in order to answer their behavioral questions, they will ask you more details about the situation and how you handled it and problems you may have encountered. They get a little specific so know how to highlight the key points and remember things you accomplished so you don't get trapped.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I wasn't really given a chance to negotiate, but I was given the higher end on the salary scale (based on the salary band I have seen on this site)
